Kids need education

Emmanuel, the founder of the Gbeke­bii School of Art and Cul­ture in Jamestown/Ghana, has only one goal in mind: to show chil­dren from the fish­ing slum a way out of poverty by provid­ing them with free edu­ca­tion. In order to con­vince par­ents to send their chil­dren to school reg­u­larly, all 150 chil­dren receive a hot meal every day — often the only meal of the day.

Emmanuel is always strug­gling with new chal­lenges: Cur­rently, it is not only the rap­idly rising infla­tion, but also a con­flict between the own­ers of the prop­erty, which is why he has to fear for his school build­ing.
He urgently needs help to be able to con­tin­ue to provide school­ing for the children.
